Baby, It's Cold Outside
Ella Fitzgerald with Louis Jordan

[Music and lyrics by Frank Loesser]

I really can't stay
(But, baby, it's cold outside)
I got to go way
(But, baby, it's cold outside)
This evening's has been
(Been hoping that you'd drop in)
So very nice
(I'll hold your hands, they're just like ice)
My mother will start to worry
(Beautiful, what's your hurry)
And father will be pacing the floor
(Listen to the fireplace roar)
So really I'd better scurry
(Beautiful, please don't hurry)
Well, maybe just a half a drink more
(Put some records on while I pour)

The neighbors might think
(Baby, it's bad out there)
Say, what's in this drink
(No cabs to be had out there)
I wish I knew how
(Your eyes are like starlight now)
To break the spell
(I'll take your hat, your hair looks swell)
I ought to say no, no, no, sir
(Mind if I move in closer)
At least I'm gonna say that I tried
(What's the sense of hurting my pride)
I really can't stay
(Oh, Baby, don't hold out)
[Ahh, but it's cold outside]

I simply must go
(But, baby, it's cold outside)
The answer is no
(But, baby, it's cold outside)
This welcome has been
(How lucky that you dropped in)
So nice and warm
(Look out the window at that storm)
My sister will be suspicious
(Gosh, your lips look delicious)
My brother will be there at the door
(Waves upon a tropical shore)
My maiden aunt's mind is visious
(Gosh, your lips are delicious)
Well, maybe just a cigarette more
(Never such a blizzard before)
I've got to get home
(But, baby, you'll freeze out there)
See ya, lend me a comb
(It's up to your knees out there)
You've really been grand
(I thrill when you touch my hand)
But don't you see
(How can you do this thing to me)
There's bound to be talk tomorrow
(Think of my life long sorrow)
At least there will plenty implied
(If you caught pnuemonia and died)
I really can't stay
(Get over that old out)
[Aah. but it's cold outside]

(Where could you be goin')
(When the wind is blowin')
(And it's cold outside)
[Baby, its cold, cold outside]
